2. MICRO-PERFORMANCE: “TAKE A NUMBER, LEAVE YOUR HEAD”

With “Take a Number, Leave Your Head. A Cellar Club Piece with Drinks and Dada”, a second series of micro-performances will be conducted in the frame of Ars Electronica Festival 2014. Klaus Obermaier and the Ars Electronica Futurelab have recourse to an anti-art movement that still packs a punch even as it nears 100: Dada with its predilection for the anarchic and absurd. 98 years after the first Salon Dada in Zürich’s Cabaret Voltaire, the experimental piece takes the Dada mentality that once rained down abuse on the bourgeoisie and lets it loose on our high-tech present.
